Maya’s New Friend is performed outdoors. 


Maya’s New Friend is an interactive, funny and musical play about friendship and how zany and difficult it can be. In the performance we meet Maya, who is bored and entertains herself by watching Tiktok videos. Alvar, who Maya sees as her best friend, is sick. Suddenly in the middle of watching Tiktok, somebody, who Maya has not met before, appears and a fragile but important friendship begins.
